MessageOne Wins Prestigious Law Technology News Award for Best 2006 Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Provider

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 31, 2007 -- MessageOne, the leading business continuity and email management company, today announced that it has won Law Technology News' (LTN) prestigious 2006 award for the best Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Provider.

MessageOne provides market-leading business continuity managed services to ensure that mission-critical applications, email and data are always available no matter what system fails or disaster strikes. The company also offers the most powerful email archiving service and emergency notification system currently available.

MessageOne is Top Choice for Legal Industry

MessageOne received the LTN award for its EMS Email Continuity™ offering, which defends against all categories of email downtime with Microsoft® Exchange and Lotus Notes®, ensuring that email and BlackBerry® services are always available. MessageOne's EMS is the email continuity solution of choice for today's legal industry. The company's fast-growing roster of customers includes nearly 80 percent of the AmLaw 100 and more than 300 law firms, among them, Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P., Adams and Reese L.L.P., Holland & Knight, Baker Botts L.L.P. and Andrews Kurth L.L.P.

When an organization's primary Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Notes email system fails, MessageOne's EMS Email Continuity provides immediate access to a fully integrated standby email system. Unlike other high availability solutions, EMS Email Continuity is immune to database corruption and Windows viruses. It is the only solution that offers complete email protection, costs a fraction of other less effective options and can be installed in as little as an hour.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by LTN as the best Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Provider -- it's a tremendous validation of our focus on making sure that email is always available," said Russell Sachs, MessageOne Co-Founder and Vice President, Legal Solutions. "With law firms and legal departments increasingly dependent on email for conducting their business on a daily basis, email can never go down, even during an outage caused by a hurricane or other natural disaster."
